adidas ACE X City Pack

Donned ‘Cage Shoes’, adidas have released a new collection for both their ACE and X boots – made for playing in cages and courts.

adidas are going head to head with Nike in the ‘trendy’ street football department. The marketing machine which is Nike has done a great job of creating demand in this sector with their FootballX range, but now adidas are involved with versions for their ACE and X ranges.

Both the ACE and X get a Limited Edition shoe inspired by three cities; Hackney London, Brooklyn New York and the district of Kreuzberg Berlin.

Each city is represented on the boots with unique graphics and colours upon base colours that connect with the surface, concrete and asphalt. This combines well with the reflective branding and detail which is designed to light up under streetlamps.

As they are made for the street (or cage!), both shoes are built to be rugged and durable.

The ACE is re-equipped for games on any surface, with a hard-wearing upper offering playmaking that goes beyond a pitch. X players have new product features too, with new instep contact points increasing abrasion resistance, with the TechFit mid-cut collar offering lockdown fit to cause chaos on the court.

It’s about time that adidas came to the ‘street football party’ and offered an alternative to the Nike range. 

In terms of looks, the City Pack makes a good start, but Nike still edges it. 

What sounds interesting is that these boots are multi surface, one shoe for astro / indoor / street use.
